Win or lose next Tuesday, admirers of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin can gaze at her all year round with the release of the 2009 Sarah Palin calendar, filled with original photos from Anchorage-based photographer and friend-of-Palin Judy Patrick.
The 13-month calendar-the first of its kind-includes dozens of original portraits and candid shots of the Alaska governor on the job and with her family. July's pictorial, for instance, features Palin wrapped in the American flag, with a sidebar of pictures of her and her children.
"This flag photo was taken just days after the terrorist attacks on 9/11 in 2001. Sarah, like the rest of the nation, was trying to cope with the attacks on American soil and demonstrating her patriotism," the caption reads.
